Notes from Teleconference 

Ending the Streak Agaist the Hokies: Micah says their focus this Saturday is making sure they can send the seniors on a high note. He says he has huge respect for this Hokies team and what they have accomplished. 

On the Senior Class:  "they showed us the way," said Kiser. The linebacker said these guys showed the team how to fight until the end-no quite attitude. 

Tenuta in the box upstairs: Kiser says Tenuta just likes it better up there. It's more of a person option for the defensive coordinator.

Playing without Zach: Kiser said Kelvin (Rainey) did a good job with them. Micah says if Zach can't play again this weekend, they will have everything ready to go this week at practice. 

On Virginia Tech Offense: Micah Kiser says the Hokies tight ends are very versatile, and they will adjust to that. Micah says UNC tight end was more like a wide receiver, which is something like what they will face with Bucky Hodges. 

Excited for Defensive showdown?: Kiser says he likes the old school grounded up type of match ups that will be more like a chess match between the offense and the defense. 

Movtivation for Sat.: Kiser says they are focused on themselves. They are focused on sending the seniors out with the win, bringing back the cup.
